Go Set a Watchman
Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Jean Louise Finch comes back to Maycomb to visit her family and old friends. Much has changed. Her brother, Jem, is long dead and her father and “boyfriend” appear to be embroiled in racism and unpleasantness. Jean Louise no longer feels part of her home town these days. What will it take to change her mind?

I didn’t really intend to read this novel as I wanted to “preserve” my thoughts on “Mockingbird”, but a friend borrowed it from the library and brought it in for me to read. I wish I hadn’t! The story is just about there (only just) and the characters shallow and uninteresting. Pretty much nothing at all happens, Scout has a few conversations, and all comes to an unsatisfactory end. I wasn’t sorry to finish it and I wish I hadn’t bothered to start.
